Fake Veteran Pat King Is Released on Bail After 150 Days Behind Bars

After 150 days in custody, Pat King, an organizer of the so-called freedom convoy that terrorized downtown Ottawa for three weeks earlier this year, has been granted bail.

The proceedings were subject to a publication ban.

Superior Court Justice Anne London-Weinstein delivered the decision in an Ottawa courtroom on Monday morning.

King has so far managed to secure the backing of several sureties for a total of $45,000.

Prior to his release from jail, King had to pay a $25,000 cash bail. In addition, two other sureties are each on the hook for $5,000 and $10,000. A third surety is required to put up an additional $5,000 in case of a breach.

As part of King’s bail conditions, he is prohibited from using social media, possessing weapons or ammunition, or participating in activities related to the so-called freedom convoy.

In addition, King will not be permitted to contact other convoy organizers, including Benjamin Dichter, Chris Barber, Tamara Lich, and failed PPC candidate Tom Marazzo, unless legal counsel is present.

King must return to Alberta within 24 hours, where he will live with a surety, and adhere to a curfew of 10 p.m. until 6 a.m.

In April, the Crown announced it was charging King with three counts each of perjury and obstruction of justice. Aside from these charges, King is also facing ten charges related to his involvement in the Ottawa protests last winter.
